Additional Comments

You must copy the file libfontconfig.so.1.4.4 from http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/libs/libfontconfig1 (opens with archive manager) to usr/lib32 (in 64 bit Linux). Once this is done Stars works Flawlessly (including sound in the battle recorder!)

Can't create new game
by Luke Swanson on Saturday April 10th 2010, 22:34
I was able to install the game and start it, and it opens up the title screen, but when I select "new game" an alert pops up telling me that WineVDM.exe has experienced a problem and needs to close, and I am stuck without my game. Is there a fix for this?

P.S. I am running mac OSX

Never mind, I have 2.6j, not 2.6i, and wine 1.1.42 fixed the problem. Thank you Wine programmers!
